Join HERE's challenge!

With access to over 20 different APIs, developer.here.com has everything you need for location-based integration. Participants should prepare a short 10 min presentation of what their project offers and how they used location to get there. Projects will be judged on creativity and best use of the APIs by the HERE developer evangelist team at community day.

The project with the best use of HERE APIs will win an Alexa Echo for each team member (up to 5).
